What is your overall opinion of this school?

Point Loma Nazarene University mesmerizes visitors as soon as their eyes overlook the outstretching ocean resting beneath the famous Sunset cliffs. For many students, the gorgeous view and the ocean's accessibility are enough to commit then and there; however, once their first semester begins these people start to slowly second guess their immediate decision for all the university's misconceptions. One of the greatest appeals for the university is its close proximity to the beach, yet with this distance comes "surf shack" like dorms that are kept to a low cleanly standard. Additionally, there are few sports and intramural teams offered, making those who desire an active college experience limited. Furthermore, the cafeteria is more tolerable than students tend to illustrate, having consistent food groups offered and tasty choices rotated throughout the week. Although there are days without any new or improved options, the cafeteria always has food to offer.

PLNU is a great school to attend with it has great class sizes, a friendly culture, and an amazing staff/faculty. The professors are easy to get in touch with and with the smaller class size, there is always a way to ask questions and are always ready to help when needed. Not only that but they always seem to care and are interested in our lives.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Point Loma Nazarene University is a highly regarded school with rigorous academics and a beautiful campus. I lived on campus my freshman year and it was so amazing to be living within walking distance of the beach! I was able to study on the cliffs, take classes with an ocean view, and meet all sorts of different people.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am so glad that I chose to attend Point Loma Nazarene University. The campus is beautiful, which provides a great break from studying. But I was impressed by the sense of community that permeates across campus, the accessibility to my professors, and the overall experience. This has become one of my favorite places and designates one of the best times of my life. While PLNU might not be for everyone, everyone is welcome. I am grateful that I had the opportunity to attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Aside from the breath taking view that the campus offers of the Pacific Ocean symbolizing the vast opportunities that the school provides for students, Point Loma Nazarene University is one of those places where community is alive and everyone is on a spiritual journey, yet no one is left alone. Coming to this school has offered me so much hope, faith, and enjoyment in the journey that I am on and it also allows me to look at the world with a broader and bigger perspective. The school really touches base with unity, and the importance of building off of the resources and others around us in order that we might all go through our journey to become the best we can be. It really is a place where people are meant to thrive, students are meant to grow and faith is an important aspect of everyone's life that is not overlooked, no matter where we may come from.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Point Loma Nazarene University has changed my life. I am orignially from Colorado, so moving to San Diego, California where I've never been before was a little scary, but more than anything, was so exciting. The campus is beautiful because we are right on the cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Anytime I feel overwhelmed, I just go out and sit on the benches at the cliff and just look at the palm trees, ocean, and beach. There is such a positive, peaceful, and fun atmosphere to Point Loma. The campus feels extremely safe and I never feel afraid to go out alone. The "caf" food is pretty good, but just like anywhere it does have its bad days. Since its located in San Diego, there are always things to do and places to explore. I never find myself bored. As for the academics, Point Loma provides rigorous and challenging classes that will really extend you mentally and spiritually as well. The professors all know your name, and since the school is so small you know almost everyone there which can be a good and a bad thing. Chapel services are usually good, but sometimes they are purely informative about the school. Overall, I love Point Loma Nazarene University, and I am so glad to be attending here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a safe, beautiful campus with an amazing community filling it. I have yet to meet a rude or apathetic staff member, and have met and seen and heard of quite a few that are the opposite. The classes can be hard, especially if you have one of the more demanding majors like Nursing or Bio-Chem, but the staff and your fellow students make it much easier, along with a very accessible tutoring center available for most if not all classes. Fellow students are for the most part a very welcoming and nice community, with very little partying going on. If partying is your thing, PLNU is not the school for you!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Point Loma is known as a great school because of it's location. It lies right on the edge of Sunset Cliffs in San Diego, and it is absolutely gorgeous. I noticed the school because of it's beauty, but I fell in love with it because of its community. The professors truly care about their students, and there are good people to be found around every corner. The school is old, and some of its buildings and practices are outdated, but the staff has been working hard in recent years to communicate with students and modernize the campus.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

This school is unique compared to other schools I have considered because of its location and also its strong emphasis on a relationship with God. There are four chapels held a week. Students have a minimum amount of chapels they must attend. Even classrooms speak of God and religion. A relationship with God is encouraged so strongly, it seems to be tied into everything that happens on campus.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

As I packed up my life and boarded the plane that would fly me away from the island of Oahu, Hawaii, I never really pondered how my life would change. Even as I attended the new student orientation and unpacked all my belongings into my new dorm room, I barely registered that this was an enormous milestone in my life. Everyone talks about college being a milestone, but like most things, you don't realize how true it is until it's happening to you. I miss my home island every day and self-care has been a struggle for me. If I could go back in time, I would tell my high school senior self to make sure you are taking care of yourself through the transition of moving away from home and attending college. Many struggles will bombard you and you may become overwhelmed with all the changes. Through all of it, take time for yourself to make sure you are happy and healthy. Make sure to love yourself so that you can love others to the fullest. You have to take care of yourself before you can take care of others.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school is the view and location. I have the amazing blessing of seeing the ocean every single day. I am blown away by the beauty of nature and it reminds me of the wonder of this world and everything it has to offer. The weather is amazing as well. Sunny almost every single day.
